Academic Success
Class Syllabus – Keep, read, and follow! An
instructor may change syllabus at any time.
Focus – Prepare for class, complete assignments
on time, and pay attention in class (take notes,
turn off cell phones, participate, be courteous).
Disruptive Behavior in Class – This can
prevent other students from learning. You can
face disciplinary measures from the instructor
and/or the university.
Academic Integrity
• Cheating is defined as “an act or attempted act of
deception by which a student seeks to misrepresent that
he/she has mastered information on an academic exercise
that he/she has not mastered.”
• Cheating may occur on an exam, test, quiz, laboratory work
report, theme, out of class assignment or any other work
submitted by a student to fulfill course requirements and
presented as solely the work of the student (this includes
facilitation of academic dishonesty).
Academic Integrity
Plagiarism is defined as, “intentionally or knowingly representing the words
of another, as one’s own in any academic exercise.”
Plagiarism is CHEATING and penalties range from simply affecting your grade
to dismissal from the University.
The Center for Academic Integrity:
Class Attendance
• Be there – Be on time! Most classes require 90% attendance
(arriving late usually counts as ½ class absence; leaving early may
count as a whole class absence).
• Please check the course syllabus and speak to the instructor
regarding the departmental attendance policy. It can vary by class
and instructor.
• You can fail a course even if you have a passing grade by not
following the attendance policy.
• You still have to attend your EKU Dual Credit class while on break at
your high school. Please remember this before making vacation
plans, etc…
